Brazilian things in NYC

Hi, I'm moving to NYC for 4 months from Brazil. I'm going to be living on 97th street on the east side and working near the Empire State Building. For those moments when I want something Brazilian, what are all the good Brazilian places for me to discover? (nightclubs, bakeries, food stores, cheap restaurants, music, etc.)

  1. I live in your soon-to-be-neighborhood and there is quite a good Brazilian restaurant on E. 92nd Street called Zebu Grill that is a favorite of ours.

    Welcome to Manhattan.

      We like Zebu as well. Isnt there still an array of Brazilan places on West 45th St.?

        I think so - just not familiar with them.

          Via Brasil on West 46th Street , between 5the and 6th Avenues ("Little Brazil Street") is our favorite--good food and service, nice ambience.

      2. Hi folks:

        Just a reminder that music and nightclubs are beyond the scope of our boards, so please limit your responses to chowish ones!

        Thanks.

        1. I love the cassava-coconut muffins at Brasil Coffee House at Lexington & 30th. The coffee's great too.

          1. if you can make all the way down and out to brooklyn (williamsburg), miss favela botequim is a fun place for good food, strong drinks, and festive atmosphere

            you can make an evening of it by going to club bembe for good pan latin music and dancing (just a couple blocks away).

            1. You should also post something on the Outer Boroughs Board. There's a large Brazilian community in Astoria and a very good Brazilian store on 34th Ave.

              1. you may like DELICIA in the west village. its quirky and quiet. good feijoada. the food takes a while to come so do not be in a hurry.

                also, be sure to visit the ironbound neighborhood in newark, nj. aside from all the restaurants & shops you will love seabra's mega grocery.

                1. There is a fantastic little Brazilian place in the far West Village called Delicia. It's on West 11th St.
